One Skein Pattern SuggestionsYou may have seen our recent blog post about Jacqui's gorgeous Adelaide sweater designed by Isabell Kraemer that she knit in the shade Rosehip. Jacqui used just under three balls of the Cashmere Lace, but there are plenty of beautiful one skein projects you can knit! The Ilara scarf is a delicate and elegant scarf that only requires one ball of Yarntelier Cashmere Lace. Looking for a bit of everyday luxury to pair with your outfits? Why not give this pattern a go! The Ilara pictured above is knit in the shade Mist, a beautiful silver grey, but imagine it in the shade Fireside or Moor for a colour pop. Looking for a light wrap for those cool summer evenings? The Olena shawl might be just what you need. The shade Bark is pictured above, but the Olena shawl would be just as stunning in Rook or Sandstone. The Mira shawl is a delicate lace pattern knit with just one ball of Cashmere Lace - shown here in the shade Fireside - which would be an excellent project to cast on for yourself or as a special gift for someone. Wouldn't it be just lovely? Not only is Yarntelier's Cashmere Lace soft and lightweight, but it's also warm making this pattern and the others perfect for draping over your shoulders on a cool evening.
